Hi. I have a shrub boarder running the length of my fence apart from right near the end. Last year I had a plant pot with some flowers in it. This year i'd like to do something a bit more permanent. The depth is probably about a foot/foot and half. The shed door opens towards the plants. all ideas welcome
for some reason this pic didnt load. for ref this is the length of the fence and other plants in it.
I would first remove another foot or so of turf-up to the brown paving slab at the bottom of the picture -try not to do straight lines- but curves-that opens up endless possibilities
Get some sort of support on the fence and grow some climbers
How much sun does that side get?
agree. Pave in front of the shed so you can get in and out.
I like those ideas, problem is if you can see the dog planter near the bottom in front of the first plant. it is covering some sort of manhole/drain thing so i cant expand further out as im not really sure whats under it
Have a look, flush the loo, if water rushes down it's the sewer. But it will just be pipes, one going in, one going out. Shallow rooted plants won't affect it.
It is just a drain cover as far as I can seem-lift it see how deep it is- drains are not usually anywhere near the surface-it will also give you an idea what direction they run in
cheers ill have to have a look. p.s in the summer it gets sun about half the day
Make the bed a lovely sinuous curve, leaving space for shed door to open. Lay a hose pipe down to try out various shapes.
